I recently told someone the story of how at first the Universe will whisper in your ear and if you don’t pay attention, it will then tap you on the shoulder. If you still refuse to look, it will proceed to take a lofty 2×4 to your head.
While the Universe is abundant and answers only to the vibration in which we are putting out a resonance to, it sometimes can appear that it seriously has its own agenda against us. Especially when things continue to “keep happening” to us. However, I promise you that this is simply how we learn our life lessons here in the living Matrix of the third dimension, and while it’s not always pretty it always leaves a mark on your heart and a lesson in your soul; and frankly that is the entire point of being here in the first place.
It’s funny how one can be aware of and yet not embody knowledge to the point that you get a couple 2×4‘s to the head at once and still your stubborn ass is traveling on listening to your ego telling you everything is fine as-is and don’t pay attention to that over there calling for ample opportunity for growth and positive change in your life! But for some of us, that is just how WE learn and that is okay too.
See, this is how we test ourselves. Yes, I said ourselves and we will continue to do so over and over in our lives until we realize that it is our own voice we are hearing deep inside calling out to remember who we really are; who we were before they all told us who we should be as children. The soul that might have layers of ancestral guilt to heal before getting to the juice of their true purpose here in this lifetime. The Spirit might have some confusion to work out before being able to make a heart-centered choice from a different stand-point.
That voice is what I’m sure we’ve all heard called before our “inner child”. That raw, un-filtered part of us that so dearly just wants to be loved and accepted as they are. The one that doesn’t want to be told to shut up because they have strange ideas or don’t fit in. The one that perhaps keeps those ideas to themselves now in fear of rejection. The one who’s voice has grown quieter over the years due to the addition of other people’s core beliefs as well as societal conditioning.
By the time we get into our 20‘s we are merely cracked mirrors of our parents, teachers, those we idolize on TV, our friends, etc. For many of us, all we know is the opinions of others and tend to only hear the voices of those outside of ourselves when it comes to forming our self-worth and self-esteem and this causes hardship in discovering who we are and what our purpose is in life. We tend to begin to see and judge others this way too like we all pass around this proverbial filter we agree to see each other through and will promise to accept one another as long we continue to stay the same and conform.
No wonder in 30‘s most of us feel like lost big children and since we have not heard our own voice is so long, we might even have forgotten what it sounds like at this point. I know I did for a while even though my entire life there was no doubt in my mind I was walking some sort of spiritual path that served a great purpose. I still felt unseen, unheard; like I was doing my “work” in the shadows per say and now is just beginning to birth my metamorphosis into the light; where the sound of my own voice is again a familiar sound and even one that I find comforting and trust.
We may feel like we lose our voices for many reasons, but usually, they stem back to the two main huge ones I’ve mentioned which are societal conditioning and the core beliefs instilled in us by our parents and other adults around us the most as we grow up. I’ve learned that it’s okay to listen to what another has got playing on their radio, and don’t disrespect someone by changing the station without asking, but by all means, if you don’t resonate with the music, then it’s seriously time to start playing your own…
I have many dreams and sometimes as an empath, it can feel overwhelming working on achieving them; (both my business and personal goals) and I know I’m not the first person alive to ever feel that way. But I began to realize that some dreams of mine were dying not merely because I was lacking in my effort, but rather it had to do with my intent. I was living for others. My motivation was laden with guilt. And while it’s great to want to make other people happy and proud, you eventually come to learn to trust your own voice and know that people will either hear you or they won’t. What matters is that YOU never stop listening! 🙂
